Dietrich Bonhoeffer

(from The Cost of Discipleship)

"...in the modern world it seems so difficult to walk with absolute certainty in the narrow way of ecclesiastical decision and yet remain in the wide open spaces of the universal love of Christ, of the patience, mercy, and 'philanthropy' of God for the weak and ungodly. Yet somehow or another we must combine the two, or else we shall follow the paths of men. May God grant us joy as we strive earnestly to follow the way of discipleship."
